Annual Havenholde Holiday Party

Havenholde started a tradition many years ago of having a party/dinner celebration party/dinner during the holidays.  The idea was to help folks be with friends and celebrate the holidays, especially those in the group who didn’t have family close by.

Sunday, December 18, 2016 the Havenholde Holiday party/celebration will be held at Eric and Ellen’s home.  They are known in the Society as Ragnar of Birka and Leah of Wycombe .  Their home is located at  2400 Greenknoll Drive, Springfield OH 45502.  I have included the full address for those of you wishing to use your GPS.  If you have trouble finding them, their phone # is 937-925 0645. 

The party will start at 4 p.m.  and at  5:00 p.m. it will be time to eat.  Things will finish up around 9 p.m. 

 Eric and Ellen will provide ham. Bring booze if you want. BUT, as a responsible host, I will ensure you don't drive under the influence. . Call the number listed if you have questions.  Oh yes. Hopefully only a few people will bring deserts.  If for some reason you don't have a food item, you are still expected to attend and share this holiday season with all of us.

 If you can let Eric and Ellen know if you are going to attend and what you will be bringing it would be appreciated.  Contact e-mail for Eric is   eottosan@woh.rr.com
